- DISPOSABLE MASKS ARE REQUIRED. In accordance with state mandates, masks are required to be worn while at All Aboard. Masks may be removed for eating and drinking only. Based on updated recommendations from the CDC and WHO, we are requiring a new disposable mask every day as they are more effective then reusable fabric masks. All Aboard will require masks throughout March and April.
EVERYONE MUST COMPLETE AND HAVE AN APPROVED “APPLICATION FORM” PRIOR TO ATTENDING ALL ABOARD. If you do not have approval to attend, you will be turned away. A caregiver will be called and will have one hour to pick up the participant or a $75 charge per hour will apply. This is a part of our safety process and no exceptions will be made. Please make sure you have completed your application form and receive approval BEFORE coming to All Aboard. The application can be found here:
- ANYONE WHO ATTENDS ALL ABOARD MUST HAVE PROOF OF VACCINATION AND BOOSTER. This will not be waived for quite some time. We have a high-risk population, and their safety is very important to us. It is critical that all who attend All Aboard (this includes staff, volunteers, bus drivers, etc.) be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Anyone who attends All Aboard must receive their booster and submit their proof of vaccination by Friday, February 11th.
Proof of vaccination must be through https://waverify.doh.wa.gov/ (website can take up to 3-days to log your vaccine). Follow the steps on the website then forward the record by email to email@example.com.
If you would like help with the online verification, please call 425-327-5533 during business hours and we will walk you through the process.
- EXPOSURE. If a participant tests positive for Covid and has attended All Aboard in the last two weeks, please notify us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org or 425-327-5533 so that we can notify anyone who was exposed as soon as possible. We record everyone who comes to the center so that we can track exposure, but this only works if we are notified of any positive cases.
If anyone at your residence tests positive for Covid, please do not allow any participant from your residence to come to All Aboard until the quarantine time (10 days) has passed AND the participant has tested negative on a PCR lab test - not just a rapid at-home test. We want to keep our participants, staff, and bus drivers safe.
- TESTING. We know that testing appointments are hard to come by right now, but with the new omicron variant being harder to detect, we are only accepting PCR lab tests as proof of being Covid negative. At-home rapid tests have not been as accurate at detecting Omicron, so if a participant has any symptoms or has been exposed to someone who has Covid, they must go to a clinic or testing site and get a PCR test with a negative result before returning to All Aboard.
- SYMPTOMS. Omicron has some new symptoms not previously associated with Covid. Please review the list below, and if a participant has ANY ONE of these symptoms, keep them home until they have a negative PCR test. If a participant has any of these symptoms while at All Aboard, we will call their caregivers to pick them up immediately. If they are not picked up within an hour, they will be billed $75 an hour until they are picked up. Please make sure we have up-to-date emergency contact information and that you have a pick-up plan in place in case a participant needs to leave early, but most importantly - do not send them to All Aboard with any of the below symptoms.
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
- COLD and FLU SEASON. As we are in cold/flu season, please help us keep our participants safe. Please do not send participants if they have symptoms of a cold/flu, even if they test negative for Covid. Keep them home for monitoring until at least 24 hours after their fever has passed. Flu shots are encouraged for those who are able.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us at 425-327-5533 or email us at email@example.com.
